thanks again for the advice
How do you feel about your girlfriend blatantly lying to you about being able to go to Immigration and get a new visa?
Now you are planning to spend the pregnancy as a long distance relationship? Given she is unlikely to be able to return to HK anytime soon, and you don't seem to be considering quitting your job and moving to the Phillipines... what kind of father are you planning to be - absentee, sending some cash once a month?
a friend of mine married an Indonesian woman who had overstayed her visa. They tried to use the marriage to apply for her dependency visa however Immigration refused and she was deported and he applied for nearly a year after her deportation, to have her come back here, but HK Immigration kept refusing.
She had overstayed her visa for at least a year. HK Immigration is not likely to be nice to you.
However you CAN get married, that is done via HKID card, wish you luck with whatever decision you make.
If she lied to you, you better walk. If you knew, she knew but you both didn’t do your homework, that’s stupid but it happens.
See if you can get married in your / her consulate. I know some consulates issue marriage certificates at least overseas.
It sounds like an anchor baby to me.
BEAWARE - divorce results in 50/50 asset splits. Don’t take marriage and divorce lightly here. Prenuptial agreements are effectively worthless (even with a good lawyer) from what I am told.
Wow I was not expecting this thread to be such a roller coaster!
I don't have anything to add except report to Immd immediately. The longer she is out, the worse it will get in the future. Overstaying is a serious offence.
